So something you’ll learn about me soon is that I have a tolerance for some really edgy and “out-there” methods of play. This weekend, I got up to a little diaper-play and toyed around with something totally new. Bisacodyl may not sound too familiar, but I bet many of you know what suppository laxatives are. Thankfully this weekend’s use of suppository laxatives was not necessary and simply just recreational. Continue reading →
Hello readers, so my last post was rather… bitchy, I know. So I’m going to remedy that by posting something more substantive and meaningful. Some of the elements of this post may seem unclear but I ask that you bare with me to the end.
Today I discovered “Team” by New Zealand singer Lorde. After binging on the song and looking up the lyrics, a lot of feels came to the surface. What I drew from the song is sticking with your buds in the face of hostile and rough social scenes. I empathized with a lot of the lyrics in particular. The Chorus reads:
“We live in cities you’ll never see on screen Not very pretty, but we sure know how to run things Living in ruins of the palace within my dreams And you know, we’re on each other’s team”
Things are starting to speed up for our heroine in Chapters 3 and 4. In the aftermath of the encounter at the hardware store, Anastasia and Kate arrange a photoshoot with Mr. Grey the following day at a swanky hotel in downtown Portland. This is then followed up by an unintelligible coffee date between Ana and Grey, the completion of Ana and Kate’s finals, and a wild night of revelry. Continue reading →
Lately I’ve been contemplating developing my skill with verbal and practical humiliation both in private and in public. Humiliation, belittlement, degradation in public and in private are all pervasive in BDSM to a certain extent. All Dominants engage in some act that belittles or reduces their submissives. Players use diminutive titles and nicknames when referring to submissives all the time (boy, girl, slave, pet, slut, etc…). Submissives may be required to engage in certain acts in the presence of their Dominants, such as kneeling or as human furniture (e.g. a double-whammy: you have been sentenced to 30 hours in a shameful sandwich board).
Chapter 2 finds our heroine running from the botched interview in a tizzy, having some words with her lousy roommate, and a less-than-graceful run-in with the “epitome of male beauty,” Mr. Grey at Ana’s hardware store.
Still striking is Ana’s abysmal self-esteem. Girl needs to stop wallowing in her own self-pity and grow a pair. Even her roommate Kate is described as “arching a perfect eyebrow” during conversation, while still too infirm to leave the house. Later on, she seems a little less believable when she describes her best-friend Jose’s tall, dark, muscular features with loving detail, and then pretty much finishes with “but he’s just my friend.” (Said no girl EVER!)

This Journal Entry will center on limits, negotiation, and communication in S&M play, and how notto go about pushing them. For those who are not yet aware, a “Limit” in kink play is a player’s boundary between what they will consent to experience and what they will not consent to. There are two widely used types of limits, HARD-LIMITS, and soft-limits. Continue reading →
Unfortunately there is no BDSM in the first 16 pages so I’ll just be giving my initial reactions. First off, I may establish another ticker keeping track of how many times Anastasia Steele comments on Christian Grey’s piercing stupid gaze. In her first encounter with Grey she mentions it 10 times. Continue reading →
Hello readers, so I’ll be kicking off the new year with a project. In the last few years, British author E.L. James’s “Fifty Shades of Grey” novel series has taken hold of the literary world; so much so that it has garnered a film adaptation slated for release in February, 2015.
While the internet and most of the western world has simply splooged itself over this book series, the actual Kink and BDSM community, to put it nicely, has not. There have been many accusations from the Kink scene that James’s novels are not accurate or healthy representations of BDSM play or kink-oriented relationships. Continue reading →
